1. Your country
2. How much land has your country lost throughout history?
I don't really have a "country" per se but we lost a bunch of land, Frans-Vlaanderen to the French and Brussels along with some other cities (e.g. Doornik/Tournai) to the Walloons
2. Pic + The Philippines to what we are now.
something is missing my Polish friend :^)
>The name Russia is derived from Rus, a medieval state populated mostly by the East Slavs. However, this proper name became more prominent in the later history, and the country typically was called by its inhabitants "Pyccкaя Зeмля" (russkaya zemlya), which can be translated as "Russian Land" or "Land of Rus'". In order to distinguish this state from other states derived from it, it is denoted as Kievan Rus' by modern historiography. The name Rus itself comes from Rus people, a group of Varangians (possibly Swedish Vikings) who founded the state of Rus (Pycь).
Stop living in denial.
I never claimed they didn't.
Russians shouldn't even call themselves "Russians" or "Russia" because they barerly have anything in common with Kievan Rus. They're moskal, finno-ugric-tatar mutt.
Not much. Just ask the Injuns, the UK France, Mexico, and Russia.
As a French, yes I do. Since Australia was never explored for you (nor Canada, for the most part it had been explored by the French) and thus half of your """"""""empire""""""""" are the result of some stuck-high-the-arse britfag practicing coloring somewhere in London.
Let me add: all by himself and the incredible fighting skills of the Russian trooper.
you didn't control shit but the harbors and external trade, which was the only thing of value to you anyways. Brits are colonialists, not conquerors.
this is bait; but desu Napoleon needed to keep Spain as allies, and succession was uncertain (one candidate favorable to UK, the other to France), so he didn't took the risk. And ended up making a wrong call.
